To earn a spot directly in the semifinals, NAVI topped Group A by shutting Astralis down with a 2-0 and beating FaZe Clan 2-1. The side is playing some incredible CS, the likes we haven't seen since the Major, according to IGL Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen. It was a wild ride for Virtus.pro, reverse-sweeping Vitality in the opening Group B match and then getting "donked" on by Team Spirit. In the quarterfinals, VP pulled off a 2-0 against Astralis to claim a spot in the semifinal.
